Quarterly Commentary - Q3 2016


U.S. stocks reached record highs during the period but were volatile toward the end of the quarter.

The Fund outperformed its primary benchmark.

Markets are still faced with a slow-growing global economy, which we believe underscores the importance of finding select companies with truly sustainable competitive advantages that can grow without the backdrop of a strong global economy.
